Player Comments:

  • "Good battle. First set Belal was controlling things early, we had a mammoth sixth game, and I managed to come back into the set despite losing that game. Tiebreak could have gone either way with set points for both of us. Second set the sun became involved at times, as did the wind, but after winning an even more mammoth seventh game in the set, I managed to serve it out. Enjoyed it, thanks Belal"  -- Deji
Reveal CommentBelal Bareets bt Tom Preest (Mar 3) 6-2, 3-6, 7-6 (7-3)

Player Comments:

  • "Earliest and possibly the only ever 8 am start, due to time constraints on my behalf in terms of the date. Pitches that turned wet from the ice overnight. Which doesn’t suit my game. After 0-3 in the second set Tom turned it around and played well at the net and had some good forehand winners and tough drop shots to get too in these conditions made life very difficult for me.

Player Comments:

  • "One the closest intense rivalries for me across the leagues. I thinks it’s same for him . However, unfortunately more than half our matches so far had rain elements. Both sets were similar but the other way round. Sanket punishes well at the net and has difficult angle shots, but I was like a magnet returning almost all . My forehand and powerful serves with dampy balls didn’t trouble him a lot as even hitting a fast corner shot he gets back most of the times. So it was rather tactically. We ran out time tbc ..!"  -- Belal

Overall, it was a highly competitive game, and every game after 3-0 could have swung either way. Good luck to Jack for the remainder of his matches. Perhaps just one more to go. "  -- Sushil
